Exclusive: Sound Sultan and his love for Basketball

Fola Akintomide

Sound Sultan is clearly the true definition of a business oriented entertainer with his music, love for making movies and his interest in Basketball.

In a brief interview with Happenings.com.ng at the Islanders last home game against Delta Force (which the Islanders won anyway) on Sunday, June 26th, 2015, The Naija Ninja boss shared his reasons for investing  in the team and his love for basketball.

You are known for music, why basketball

I agree with you, I am known for music but I have been playing Basket ball for a long time, I was even a professional player at some point. It is not something i just picked up along the line, it has always been part of me – I still play it inactively and enjoy it as a spectator.

There have been rumours that you own Lagos based basketball club ‘Lagos Islanders’ how true is this ?

No! I am a co-owner of the basketball club. I have shares in it along with the Incumbent owner, Mr. Damoye, Ugo Udeze and Tajudeen Suleiman.

How has the reception been on game days?

It has been wonderful. The reception and support from fans, players, colleagues in the industry, my friends have been awesome. It shows that time and efforts have not been wasted.

As regards music, what should we be expecting for the rest of 2015?

It’s a surprise… wait on it.

Did he promise to give us an inside scoop when he’s ready? Well time will tell.
